    Margie Lopez Read, artist and donating all the process of her art

    in Business

    Margie Lopez Read paintings, and or prints of paintings are traded for a check made out to a worthwhile organization that the buyer and Margie agree upon.  


    Donation Art Project.  Donating all the proceeds of her art to a non-profit.


    The ‘trades’ of her paintings have raised funds for many programs including ‘Doctors Without Borders’, ‘UNICEF’, scholarship funds, food for children programs, athletics for the disabled, animal protection programs and other humanitarian aid programs through the world.  And it seems to be growing…
     
    "Art is life and not worth much unless it helps make the world just a little bit better in one way or another."
     
    Art has been important to Margie her whole life, influenced in large part by her grandmother Margie Cooper, who was an accomplished painter.  Because of her (also her namesake), her parents allowed her significant freedom to partake in all things creative.  Margie Lopez Read indulged in a variety of media, techniques and styles – traditional, contemporary, surreal, pop  -- all that was around and developing in the 60’s and 70’s.  She also did a fair amount of illustration, cartoons and silk screen art with social and political commentary for high school and university newspapers and for movements such as United Farm Workers.
     
    Over the years, she has participated in various art events, both juried and open.  Margie has won some ribbons here and there, and has sometimes displayed her work in art galleries. She states, "All of that is fun, but I want my art to do more. You see, I believe that art is at its best when it teaches, records a memory, tells a story, or provokes thought.  It is better still if it can be used to raise funds for worthwhile non-profit programs that improve the condition of our world."

    Actor Lauran De Winter

    in Entertainment

    As a young boy, Lauran grew up in the Netherlands, outside of the little town oud-vossemeer, on a farm. He was a very active kid, always playing outside. And after a short dream of wanting to be a soccer player he decided to focus all his intention on becoming a professional cyclist. And he succeeded, he won various international races. Next to a lot of great memories, Lauran says the cycling gave him a lot of life lessons that are still very valuable to him. He learned determination, to believe in himself, strategy, teamwork, perseverance. To him, these are the most important characteristics you need as an actor. Lauran moved to Australia to work for Unicef and Amnesty International. He is very proud to say within a year he raised over 10 million dollars for charity. This same passion he put in cycling and charity is now fully focused on acting. He resides in Hollywood, California. Lauran has appeared on various TV-shows and movies such as, Spoken and the TV show The Chosen One . Lauran is even more excited about what's coming up. He is coming out in a couple of exciting movies next year, which we're gonna talk about in the show as well. One of them is Jake's Journey, where Lauran stars as a professional cyclist. Winter's End, a scary movie, where he will be playing a character from the 1940's, the lead and love interest in the movie.


    Notice of Default is probably the first movie coming out, where Lauran will be a professional ice hockey player chasing his dream.

    Mariatu Kamara, A Story of Survival & Healing

    in Self Help

    In this interview, Mariatu Kamara recounts the events that led up to her brutal attack where young rebel soldiers in Sierra Leone captured her at the tender age of 12 and cut off her hands.  She will share how she was able to survive both physically and mentally, making peace with her past, forgiving those who hurt her and creating a beautiful life of purpose and meaning. Her message for a world facing turbulent times is Don’t give up on life no matter what! Find gratitude in everything.


    When 12-year-old Mariatu set out for a neighboring village in Sierra Leone, she never arrived. Heavily armed rebel soldiers, many no older than children themselves, attacked and tortured her. During this brutal act of senseless violence they cut off both her hands.


    Mariatu miraculously survived but with no parents to support her, she turned to begging in the streets of Freetown. Eventually, Mariatu was able to begin a new life in Canada where she co-authored her memoir, ‘The Bite of The Mango’, which to date has won several awards. Currently she is a UNICEF Special Representative for Children in Armed Conflict, giving presentations on the impact of war on children
